This is a beautiful chapel on the outside, and just as beautiful on the inside. The stain glass is so intricate, and when the sun comes through them, break taking.

Heinz Chapel was a gift by the Heinz family to Pittsburgh, but the lovely architecture that you see from the Pitt campus is nothing compared to the interior. Lovely by day with light streaming through the windows or by night for a candle-lit wedding, it...More

Sitting for a few minutes in this jewel-like tiny neo-Gothic chapel, tucked in the shadow of the majestic Cathedral of Learning, it's hard to believe it wasn't constructed in the Middle Ages. Glittering floor to soaring ceiling stained glass windows are spectacular & we were...More

If you’re touring the Pittsburgh area add the Heinz Chapel to your list. It’s a beautiful building inside and out. Plus it’s right next to the Cathedral of Learning which is another must see in Oakland.

Spend a full day in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh and include this early morning, then visit the Cathedral of Learning and its Nationality Rooms. Have lunch on Craig Street and spend the afternoon in the museums.
